Final Report: Contents and Page Limits

15 Maio 2019, 19:17 António Manuel Raminhos Cordeiro Grilo


The final report should include the contents that were requested for the intermediate report (except the results of the Entrepreneurship Challenge, which were evaluated only in the Intermediate Report), corrected and completed in order to reflect the final status of the project.

The final report shall not exceed 15 pages!!!

In order to make the structure more uniform, the following table of contents is proposed (for some projects this may have to be adapted - the students should ask me if they think that this structure does not completely fit their particular project):

1. Introduction
Problem to be solved, objectives of the project, etc.

2. Overall Architecture
System-level description, explaining the roles of the main components (e.g., Sensor/Actuator node, Cloud Server, Mobile App), as well as the data flows between them.

3. Sensor/Actuator Node
3.1. Hardware
Component description and details on how they are connected (e.g. Fritzing diagram).
3.2. Software
Description of the processing node's algorithm (flowcharts or state machine diagrams, together with a complementary text explanation are welcome), as well as message formats.

4. Cloud Server
Description of the platform where it was deployed, offered services and API's, etc.

5. Mobile App
Description of the offered functionalities and respective activity layouts, used libraries, etc.

6. Differences Relative to the Intermediate Report
In case there were later decisions that change what was planned in the Intermediate Report, they should be listed here.

7. System Testing
A short description of the performed tests and respective results.

8. Conclusions
Overall conclusions of the project.
